Rocky Road Brownies
Homemade decadent chocolate brownies topped with melted marshmallows, chocolate chips, and walnuts. A classic brownie!
Brownies are my weakness.
Oh and chocolate chip cookies.
By the time afternoon hits, I am on the hunt for one thing and one thing only…CHOCOLATE. It is what gets me through homework, running kids around, and dinnertime. If I am looking for a baked good that will do the trick, it is a brownie or chocolate chip cookie every single time. Hence, the reason I like to bake almost on the daily.
I grew up with a Dad who would buy anything at the store with walnuts in it. If there was a specialty ice cream with walnuts in it, he was hook line and sinker for it. So I decided to make a brownie just for my Dad. This recipe is for you, big Daddy!
I am obsessed with my homemade Better than a Boyfriend Brownies recipe! If you haven’t tried it, it is legit. So I decided to make it a little more gourmet by adding marshmallows, chocolate chips, and walnuts. It became the ultimate Rocky Road Brownie.
These Rocky Road Brownies start off with a rich, ooey, gooey chocolate brownie. Once the brownies are almost completely baked, sprinkle on mini marshmallows, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and chopped walnuts. Put them back in the oven to get the marshmallows nice, soft, and a tad melted. They are downright heavenly!
How to make Rocky Road Brownies:
- Start off by making this homemade chocolate brownie recipe. These brownies will come out slightly underdone because they will set up as they cool.
- Before the brownies are completely baked through, remove from oven, and sprinkle with mini marshmallows, chocolate chips, and walnuts. Return the brownies to oven and bake for 5 minutes longer, or until the marshmallows have become soft and started to melt. You can use any type of chocolate chips — milk chocolate, semi-sweet, or dark chocolate.
- Remove from the oven and let set for 10 minutes before slicing. I suggest dipping a sharp knife in hot water before slicing.

Rocky Road Topping:
- 1 10-ounce pkg. Mini Marshmallows
